    1. [AUSTRALIA-GENWEB] Barry, Evans, Mahoney, Price
    2. Chris Mahoney
    3. Am researching the above names, some of which started in Melbourne Victoria, but all eventually ended up in or around Rockhampton, Queensland. The BARRY and MAHONEY families came from Ireland.  The EVAN's came from Hereford in England and the PRICE's came from London. My website at http://www.chrismahoney.co.nz/ has more details on these families.

    3. Rootsweb is ceasing to host the active lists? The end of a great era. These lists were invaluable in the early 2000s. Thank you all and goodbye or adieu. - Migs in NZ

    1. [AUSTRALIA-GENWEB] Notice that this list is about to close.
    2. Peter Lakeman
    3. Hello members of the AUSTRALIA-GENWEB mailing list, currently hosted on Rootsweb/Ancestry servers. My name is Peter and I have been the list administrator of this list since it was abandoned. I have no idea when it was abandoned nor who the previous admin was. On 7th January 2020, Rootsweb informed all list admins that they will not be providing any mailing list services after 2nd March 2020, except to keep the archives available (see RW email appended below). In other words, all lists will cease to be. If members want to keep this list active, they will need to host it on a new server. A number of such servers exist, such as groups.io, FaceBook, google groups. I personally do not wish to remain the admin of this list, so one of the members will need to step up as a new administrator if they want to keep this list alive. As a side comment, I think that many of the smaller lists were created on a person's whim in Rootsweb's heyday, and are probably past reviving. I can't remember when the last post to this list was. If there are any questions, please post them to the list, but do it quickly as time is running out quickly. Cheers Peter ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails.  Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    3. Re Nicholas King, Trove is an Australia wide newspaper record available for free Nicholas King had several entries in The Argus Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Monday 1 January 1912. Nicholas King, labourer of Lake Bolac, in a fit of drunken temper, attacked his daughter (Daisy) with a tomahawk and then committed suicide. There are several reports as this is sensational news. Apparently he thought he had killed his daughter and hung himself with a wire. His youngest child was born in 1911.

    1. [AUSTRALIA-GENWEB] Your AUSTRALIA-GENWEB mailing list is operational again.
    2. Peter Lakeman
    3. Hello subscribers to the australia-genweb mailing list. All Rootsweb mailing lists have been nearly dead for the last two or so years. In February this year, Rootsweb upgraded the software that runs their 30,000 or so mailing lists, and after a few teething problems, the system is now up and running. The archives of past posts are gradually being restored, but this may take months. Subscribers may notice minor differences. The main difference for you is that you can register as a subscriber and then be able to adjust options for how you receive emails (e.g. single posts or digests in plain or MIME format, halt mail while on holidays and a few more things). Or you can just leave things as they are. As a reminder, this mailing list is for anyone with an historical or genealogical interest in Australia and its people; to participate in friendly discussions about almost anything that relates to that interest. This list will also address and discuss surname queries of individuals or families and research the history of that surname. To post to this list or respond to a post, use the email address      australia-genweb@rootsweb.com For questions about the operation of this list, please contact the list administrator at      australia-genweb-owner@rootsweb.com Your list is back up, so if you want to keep it active and ongoing, please post your queries or information to the list. Otherwise you may lose it! Cheers Peter Lakeman Temporary List Admin

    1. [AUSTRALIA-GENWEB] Hilda Joyce and Frederick John Von Dahren, Melbourne about 1943 to 1977
    2. migs via
    3. Greetings I’m seeking family of Hilda Joyce (nee Blomfield) and Frederick John Von Dahren (junior). They married in 1934 in Warren NSW, and lived in or near Melbourne about 1943 to 1977 according to an on-line search of the electoral rolls. – (1943, both are in Fawkner, and 1949 – 1963, in Melbourne. In 1968 only Fred is shown there. In 1972 and 1977 only Hilda is shown there.) I had one brief email contact with an Emma Morrissey, daughter of Robin, daughter of Hilda and Fred, but she vanished again. I’d like to find distant these very cousins and share with them some of our mutual ancestors, including the essential genealogy accessory, the Irish Famine Orphan. (Winifred Callaghan. She’s on the Aus Famine Orphan site.) It’s a pity when research gets duplicated because people don’t share it, and some of the puzzles I’ve nutted out were difficult. Hello Robin and ? siblings? Hello friends and neighbours? – Why can’t I find any other useful records, is it because they’ve been mis-spelt . . . Keep well, and thank you Migs (Margaret) Eder Christchurch, New Zealand

    2. Christine Benson
    3. Hi All, I am new to this list and new to research in Australia. Frederick PROCTOR was born 12 Nov 1884 in Manchester, Lancashire, England, the son of Frederick and Mary Ann. He died in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England in 1970. He was a theological student in 1911. On his brother's war record in 1920 it gives him an address of Bush Brotherhood, Australia. I cannot find when he went to Australia but he returned to England in May 1921 and shown as a clergyman. There are some records on FMP that show "F. Proctor Minister of Religion, Notice of Removal of" and say the records are in the Queensland government gazettes. I have had a look at Trove and cannot seem to find him on there but there are a lot of Frederick PROCTOR's. How do I find out more about Frederick, the Bush Brotherhood, what is in the Queensland government gazettes and any more relevant info? Is there a more appropriate list? Any information gratefully received. Christine in England

    3. Hello Jenny: Many thanks for the prompt reply. The information below is what I have found on familysearch and I think I am on the right track with this one. I was told that Augusts and family lived in the docklands area of Southampton. Alfred the father of Augustus was the son of William Stanbrook and Rachel Hiscock. Augustus STANBROOK is listed on the 1901 census with parents and siblings and his mother’s name shows as Elizabeth although I haven’t been able to find her birth record. One lister had mentioned that she was from the Channel Islands, but there again no success in locating her birth record. The name has several variations and StanDbrook is one of them as shown on the marriage record. Siblings on the 1901 census were William b. 1884, James b 1887, Albert b. 1889, Richard T. b. 1892, Charles b. 1895 and Elizabeth b. 1897. Many thanks once again for your prompt reply.

    3. Hello, As I near completion of collecting and transcribing source documents, to assist with an accurate portrayal of John and Annabella Campbell, and Bungarribee… am hoping to make contact with descendants, in the search for early letters and documents (or anything at all). John Campbell of Lochend (a Title rarely used if at all in Australia), grew up on the estate of Ardmaddy Castle, and like his father and grandfather, was also a Chamberlain, working for Lord MacDonald on Skye. He then farmed privately at Kingsburgh, when c.1816, the family took up residence at Lochend (ie., Kinlochlaich), Appin (owned since the early 1800s). Appin was their second home, where they had maintained dual residences since the late 1790s. Annabella Campbell’s (of Melfort) family home, Airds House, is about three and a half miles distant, on Airds Bay. Within a few years of improving Lochend, and adding the Gothic inspired addition, the family in 1821, decided to emigrate to Australia, chartering the ship Lusitania (arriving 29 October that year). John Campbell’s grant, taken up in February 1822, was first named Armady / Ardmady, then renamed in early 1823, to Bungarabee (ie., Bungarribee on Eastern Creek, near Blacktown). My Campbell research centres on John and Annabella - their time in Australia and events leading up to their departure on the Lusitania. After their deaths, each of their children went on to carve new lives and histories. Bungarribee remains my focus, the “loghouse” begun by John in July 1822, and still under construction in December, when the family was residing at old Government House, Windsor. By July 1823, they were at Bungarribee, “...safely landed at our own Fireside and tho’ our accommodation is not splendid yet we are not uncomfortably lodged”. Bungarribee would continue to be enlarged, only finished a short time before John’s death in October 1827. He joined Annabella at St John’s Cemetery October 12, who died on her 52nd birthday, in 1826. A selection of pictures and information on Bungarribee, can be found on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bungarribee-House-resting-place-of-a-king/192249967461389 If you can help with my research I would be much appreciative. Warm regards, John WSM Sunny Brisbane, Qld., Australia
